When Baden Meets Trane is an apt title for this trio effort from Brazilian pianist Glauco Sagebin, who gathers inspiration not just from his homeland’s sambas and bossas but also from the swing of jazz.

Using John Coltrane and Brazilian composer Baden Powell as chief influences, Sagebin, bassist Santi Debriano and drummer Paulo Braga play 11 tunes and negotiate a common ground between Baden’s bossa nova and Trane’s spiritual swing. Five of the tracks are Sagebin originals that stand strong against the songs by prominent composers, with Jobim’s “Luiza,” the Gershwins’ “Fascinating Rhythm” and Johnny Mercer’s “Laura” among them.
